WebSockets in Python (and some Redux)

As part of our work on Cesium and its web frontend, we’ve developed an easy mechanism for Python web developers to push messages from their Python backends to the browser. There are plenty of potential use cases, but consider, e.g., that you want to verify a credit card number submitted by your user. Traditionally, you’d submit the number, and then poll the backend repeatedly from the browser. Not very elegant :/
